A 26-year-old Fort Smith man, who essentially skated on serious drug charges from back in 2017 when he was given supervised probation, found himself back in court this past week facing a residential burglary charge.
Demichael Springs, whose last listed address with the court was in the 1600 block of Jackson Street in Fort Smith, was assessed six years with fourteen years suspended on residential burglary charges and also given one year in the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge.
Springs was arrested in 2017 and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possessing, using, or delivering prohibited items and received the supervised probation at that time.

According to booking information from the Sebastian County Detention Center, springs has been in jail since October 2¹, 2022. Springs also face a number of petitions to revoke, but those were all withdrawn due to his plea deal in court on Thursday
